TitleOn Verbs with a Completely Affected Goal: An Attempt at Explicating a Semantic Class.
AbstractThe pattern of regular polysemy 'action - state -process' and peculiar surface behaviour characteristic of Russian verbs corresponding to concepts 'to cover', 'to fill' are related to a number of components of their meaning. It is suggested that they are a class of verbs similar to verbs of movement in that they refer to movement and have an identical set of actants, yet differing by the unspecificity of movement referred to, the visibility of its result and the totality of Place (Goal) affectedness, the latter component being responsible for their shifted communicative perspective.
